Welcome to goofy_4_gardening's Member Page
My name is Kristen and I am a gardening fanatic! Nothing makes me happier than digging in the dirt.
Gardening is my sanctuary! I am very interested in unusual perennials. I often change my plants' locations -- in fact, I think all my plants should earn frequent flyer miles because I move them around so much.
My wonderful husband doesn't know beans about gardening, but he wields a mean rototiller, and has created several new garden beds for me. He also pulled out all my anise hyssop, thinking they were weeds, but I restrained myself from clocking him with my hoe, because the poor thing thought he was helping.
To support my plant-buying habit, I have a full-time job in corporate public relations. My other passions in life are yoga and scuba diving. I teach yoga part time, take bellydance classes, and I scuba dive once a month at the Pittsburgh Aquarium, cleaning our 400,000 ocean tank. That doesn't leave many spare hours for gardening, so on most summer mornings, I can be found at 6 a.m. on hands and knees, digging away, worrying whether that 3' phlox would look better in the front garden or side garden. Then I take a shower and go to work, my garden jones temporarily under control.
I love to talk to other perennial gardeners to share tips and ideas. My goal is to find time in my life to become a Master Gardener. Some day!
